I was offline and off-cell and off in the woods all weekend in Maine. I swam in a lake where there was nothing but lots of water, a few fish, no noise, just water lapping the dock, very few people ... about 3 ... for a few miles, in a private bowl of dark green pine trees, shooting skyward.

At night, there was a total darkness. A darkness so dark ... the kind of darkness I haven't seen in a long time. Very dark.

At dawn, a few noisy birds. I saw a loon. I saw a hawk.

It was hot and sunny ... beautiful really.

I really sloweddddddddddddddddddddddddddd down.

I really rested, first time in a long time.

I saw a bunch of moose ... mooses, whatever.

I ate great food.

I slept. I napped. I read a book from start to finish.
